(PRLEAP.COM) July 7, 2014 - The Music Festival of Rosendale is a not-for-profit, grassroots citizen organization that comes together for the purpose of continuing the legendary Rosendale Street Festival for the multiple benefits it offers to our community and the Mid-Hudson Valley as a whole. The festival is held on Main Street, Rosendale, New York each July for two days to boost the local economy and boost community interaction. The first Street Fest took place in 1978 so we celebrate it's 36th Anniversary this year!

Charlie Knicely, Musician and Festival Co-Chair states "the festival is a donation driven event that needs the support of everyone if we are going to keep providing this wonderful weekend of music, food and vendors so please be generous when you enter the festival and make sure you tell all your family and friends that they need to witness this amazing, volunteer produced event. It's one of the Northeast's greatest treasures."

Six stages are featured at the street festival five outside and one inside The Rosendale Theater where POOK and Energy will perform and The Children's Media Project will hosting a The Reel Expressions Youth Film Festival which showcases a range of some of the highest caliber youth produced media coming from teen filmmakers throughout the country.

The Street Festival will also feature two parades! The first will open the festival on Saturday at 12noon will feature the Berimbau & Pandeiro Orchestra and is hosted by Arts of Brazil. The second parade will take place on Sunday at 5:45pm and will feature the Rosendale Improvement Association Brass Band and Social Club and POOK. The Street festival is a family affair featuring some of the Hudson Valley's best music for kids and will also have a craft stations so be sure to bring your little ones! There will also be a few surprises (watch out for a flash mob or two).

Festival themed events are going on all over Rosendale leading up to the festival including a special exhibition of festival photos by Jack Baran will be featured at The Rosendale Café and Trance-n-dance-n-drum and there will be a special screening of the film "Peace, Love and Misunderstanding" which was shot during the 2012 Street festival and features many Rosendalians and Rosendale landmarks which will be shown at the Rosendale Theatre on Friday, July 18th.
